South Korean police raid Google over Street View service

Monday, 16 August 2010

South Korean police raided Google's Seoul office on Tuesday, the latest in a series of legal challenges the company is facing because of data collected by its controversial fleet of "Street View" cars.Google has been preparing since late last year to launch its "Street View" service in South Korea, and the data collection was related to the launch, police said. The probe in one of Asia's most wired countries came as a fresh setback to Google, which already faces investigation over "Street View" by 37 U.S. states as well as an informal investigation by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and a variety of probes overseas and class action lawsuits. Google confirmed in an emailed statement that South Korean police visited the company's office in conjunction with their investigation around data collection by Street View cars. It said the company would cooperate with the investigation.
